Former California State Senator and famed liberal activist Tom Hayden joins us to discuss his new book Listen, Yankee!: Why Cuba Matters. Hayden has had a decades-long relationship with Cuba. He collaborated with his friend and Cuban politician Ricardo Alarcon. In the book they talk about their shared experiences and the U.S./Cuba relationship. Christina Perez, associate professor of sociology at Dominican University and author of the book Caring for Them From Birth to Death: The Practice of Community-Based Cuban Medicine, also joins us in studio. She’s an expert on the Cuban health system and has led academic trips to Cuba.
